Jasper Fforde Marathon

Being home sick for three days has afforded me with the time to read and read and read, so far in the last three days, I'd re-read Jasper Fforde's first two Thursday Next novels and starting on "The Well Of Lost Plots", drinking lots and lots of cups of tea and orange juice and not to mention Theraflu and other assorted medications. Yesterday was a brilliant day out, the weather was warm and breezy (just the way I like it) and the temperature reached 80 degrees, and if not for the fact that both Jay and I were SICK, we'd have been out and about enjoying the glorious Memorial Day and attending assorted barbecues. Instead we stayed home and made dinner. And I dare say today's miserable weather did not improve our moods one bit, the temperature plunged to 50 degrees and it even rained a little bit....and it's JUNE!!!!

But I saw something in the supermarket that cheered me up...CHERRIES!!!! I never miss cherries at the start of the summer, although supermarket cherries can be a hit-or-miss, if you can find a halfway decent farmer's market, buy your cherries from there...they are awesome!!! Especially after you throw them in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes. Brilliant!!!

The thought of a bag of ripe, delicious Bing cherries has cheered me up slightly.
